Beset by numerous legislative proposals of a more or less mandatory character, urging recognition upon the President, the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, in 1897, made an elaborate investigation of the whole subject and came to the following conclusions as to this power: “The ‘recognition’ of independence or belligerency of a foreign power, technically speaking, is distinctly a diplomatic matter. A point of contention not tackled by Lieberman was what, if anything, Congress should do about the mandate it placed on the USPS in 2006, when a new law demanded the agency prefund its retiree health benefits for the next 75 years.

I have an equally deep distrust of peo- ple who have a touching faith that privatization will accomplish miracles, that any time you turn anything over to the private sec- tor it has got to be better. That movie is one of the few telling you what is really going on. It is a question whether a vast republic not having such political subdivisions could long stand. The good news is that there need not be a tradeoff among these goals. The Obama administration’s proposal to significantly increase the number of worldwide refugees the United States accepts annually up to 100,000 in FY 2017 would mark the largest yearly increases in refugee admissions since 1990.
